Red Cross seeks aid for tornado victims

SAN ANTONIO -- Deadly tornadoes and raging wildfires have claimed lives and property across the south. The small town of Tushka, Oklahoma was all but wiped off the map after sustaining a direct hit from a supercell thunderstorm. But the storm didn’t stop there. Families in Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, the Carolina’s and Virginia all sought shelter as the same storm system moved east, creating havoc all the way. Before the weekend ended, more than 200 twisters, 148 large hail storms and 114 straight-line wind storms had taken its toll on people’s lives. On top of that, wildfires raged out of control across West Texas, taking more than 100 homes with them.

Mother Nature unleashed her fury; so the Red Cross is now asking for Americans to show their mercy.

“These tornadoes and fires have left thousands of families in despair,” said Michael Bennett, CEO San Antonio Area Chapter. “All across the south, we’ll be helping them with the things you know us for such as opening and running safe shelters, providing meals and snacks to families and emergency workers and helping with financial assistance for those who’ve lost their homes. But because these storms took a deadly turn, we’ll also be sure our Disaster Mental Health workers are side-by-side offering professional emotional support for the grieving.”

The Red Cross reminds all communities that disasters happen every day across this nation; from single family home fires to catastrophic tornado outbreaks. Without support from the American people, the Red Cross can’t respond with immediate aid.

If you are unaffected by the tornadoes, wildfires or other disasters, please help the Red Cross. Click on www.redcross.org, text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 or call 1-800-RED-CROSS today.
